Travis Scott Reportedly Scammed By Dealership, Wants His $70K Back

Travis Scott has found himself involved in another court battle. This time, the rapper is suing a car dealership over a Lamborghini deal gone bad.

Scott Claims Car Dealership Scammed Him

The Houston rapper is taking a luxury car dealership to court, claiming he was scammed out of $70,000 in a deal for a Lamborghini.

According to TMZ, the "Butterfly Effect" rapper has filed a suit against VIP Services, Richard Martinez, and Jorge Maldonado, over a Lamborghini Huracan he wanted to purchase.

In the suit, the 25-year-old claims he approached Martinez with interest in buying a $70,000 2015 Lamborghini Huracan and brought in Maldonado as well as VIP Services in to broker the deal, which Scott says never happened.

Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster, says he was then told to wire $70,000 as down payment for the sports car. However, months went by but the rapper claims he did not receive the vehicle.

The lawsuit states that Scott trusted Martinez because he had previously brokered deals with several high-profile clients, including the Kardashian clan. As per court documents, Kylie Jenner's baby daddy believes Martinez and Maldonado were working together and is therefore taking legal action to recover his lost funds.

Scott Sued Over Concert Cancellation

This comes days after reports that Scott was on the receiving end of a lawsuit over a missed concert appearance in February. Events company PJAM sued the rapper for canceling a scheduled performance two days after Jenner gave birth to their daughter, Stormi Webster.

The company claims it paid the rapper $150,000 in advance to perform at the Super Bowl Weekend party in Minnesota on Feb. 3. Although Stormi arrived a couple of days ago, Jenner announced her birth on Feb. 4, the same day the event was scheduled.

The lawsuit states that Scott "refused to show up for the event" and failed to fulfill his contractual obligations. The company is claiming to have suffered "reputational harm" due to Scott's absence and has requested a jury trial. PJAM also alleges that the rapper has still not refunded the booking amount and is suing for the above fees plus an additional $10,000 that was paid to Scott's agent as a booking fee.

The events company is also claiming additional expenses incurred on advertising and hiring a private jet for the rapper's arrival in addition to coverage of attorney's fees and prejudgment interest.
